49ers & Patriots Could Also Be Options For OLB Courtney Upshaw

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing a league source, reports that the 49ers and possibly the Patriots could be options for free agent OLB Courtney Upshaw in the coming weeks.

Upshaw is reportedly visiting with the Jets this week, and the Colts and Ravens have also been proposed as teams to keep an eye on for him, so it appears as though his market could finally be picking up.

Upshaw, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Ravens back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract with the team and is now testing the open market for the first time.

In 2015, Upshaw appeared in all 16 games for the Ravens and recorded 51 tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles, three recoveries and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 84 edge rusher out of 110 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Best Available Free Agents list.
